Management of Ingested Button Batteries

30 May 2018  |   Attachment: button batteries ANZSPO to NZSOHNS.DOCX (705.55 KB)

Dear Colleagues

Can I urge you to read the attached document circulated on behalf of The Australian & New Zealand Society of Paediatric Otolaryngology. It contains important practical information on the management of this condition.

Regard

Paul Joice

 

NB
I will be collecting the NZ button battery data for the prospective study Hannah is doing (as the questionnaire link on the letter is specifically for Australian patients). If anyone is/has been involved with any patients who have ingested a button battery (from January this year onwards) can they please contact me?


Many thanks

Nikki Mills
